Netflix has released a first look at Sofia Vergara as Griselda Blanco from the limited series Griselda. The series, which also announced new cast, is set to bring us a different Sofia Vergara than the one we’re used to from Modern Family. And we’re absolutely looking forward to seeing her flex her acting chops.
We’re also super glad we’re finally getting some good casting for these kind of shows. I mean, it doesn’t get better than casting Sofia Vergara to play Colombian “businesswoman” Griselda Blanco.
New cast includes Alberto Guerra, Vanessa Ferlito, Alberto Ammann, Christian Tappan, Diego Trujillo, Paulina Davila, Gabriel Sloyer, Juliana Aidén Martinez, Martin Rodriguez, José Zúñiga.
Griselda is inspired by the savvy and ambitious Colombian businesswoman, Griselda Blanco, who created one of the most profitable cartels in history. A devoted mother, Blanco’s lethal blend of charm and unsuspected savagery helped her expertly navigate between family and business leading her to become widely known as the “Godmother”.
